    Question: Are the 5.2 versions of Notepad, Wordpad and Paint running on
    64bit code or 32bit?

    All of them are 64bit. Start the programs, open the task manager and check
    the name. If you find a 32 after the name, it means that it is a 32bit soft,
    otherwise, it's 64 bit :)

    Cheers

  4. Hello,
    Another way to test would be to capture filever from the support.cab from
    the cd.
    Running filever *.* lists the files with the headers which will show what
    platform all the files are.
    Thanks,
    Darrell Gorter[MSFT]

    They are in the 64-bit directory, yet I suspect some code portions have not
    been fully ported so 64-bit. It's mostly a question of what your application
    entails.
    For instance find.exe was initially unable to deal with a file over 4GB in
    size, but that was fixed at RTM, so it was a dead giveaway about the
    porting...
    Because of speed considerations, I was more at ease using vedit pro64
    (vedit.com) to handle a 200GB file than Notepad, but I still wish edit.com
    had been ported !

  6. Hello Andre,
    Do you mean Internet Explorer which defaults to 32-bit?
    Outlook Express defaults to 64-bit and most entry points are 64-bit, it's
    hard to get any portion of 32-bit OE running.
    Thanks,
    Darrell Gorter[MSFT]

  7. Applications that are 32 bit in XP Pro x64 can be recognized by an asterisk
    beside their process name:
    example - java.exe *32 or iTunes.exe *32

  8. Thanks Darrell, is that why the spell check doesn't work?

  9. Because the spell checking functionality is from Office, it is only
    32-bit, which is why 64-Bit OE doesn't work with spell checking.

  10. If you are doing basic e-mails, then OE is the way to go, if you want
    advanced calendaring and contact management plus e-mail, then Outlook is
    definitely the right choice.
